Reconsideration case for child support order, what to expect?

Seattle, WA |

Spouse never filed any documents of proof to back up his declaration that his employememt status "will" changing and income "will" be decreased. I was never served. With anything other then declaration, motion and only found out about court date by asking clerk as he had friend lie and sign a return I was in fact served calender
Motion when I was not. With no evidence to support his claims what should be expected? Is the ten day rule still applicable and since he is clueless
Will they allow a continuance for him to gather more info to
Submit or is its decided then and there based on why both parties submit only one time???

That is a matter for the commissioner. If he is representing himself, they can cut him slack and give a continuance, or they can just deny the motion. It is totally discretionary.
